The Hole in the Wall is a 16th century Grade II listed public house serving hearty British dishes in a relaxed and rustic setting. This hidden gem is tucked away in the parish of Little Wilbraham in Cambridge and is named after a literal hole that used to be in the front of the building through which weary farmers would be served ale. Inside, guests are greeted by a charming dining room featuring imposing wooden beams, comfy velvet-covered chairs and a roaring fire in the corner.

The award-winning gastropub food served at The Hole in the Wall makes use of the best high-quality produce from the local butcher, fishmonger and village markets. Mainly consisting of traditional British cuisine, the extensive a la carte menu features plenty of international dishes, vegetarian and vegan options, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Start off with duck liver parfait with orange oatmeal cookies and cucumber salad or try the seared tiger prawns with chorizo, garlic and cherry tomatoes. For the main event, keep it classic with pork sausages served with creamy mash, onion gravy and smashed peas or enquire what the fish of the day is, sold at market price and served with new potatoes, seasonal vegetables and your choice of sauce. There are also dedicated Angus beef burger and steak sections, so you’re covered if you’re in the mood for meat.

Finish with a sticky toffee pudding and honeycomb ice cream, or if you’ve not got a sweet tooth op for the cheese and biscuits. If you’ll just be stopping by, why not sit by the crackling fire and enjoy a pint of local ale with some nibbles like devilled Cornish whitebait with sriracha mayo or halloumi sticks with sumac dip.

The well-priced wine list offers a decent selection of international wines, almost all of which are available by the glass. All the classic cocktails are available, alongside a solid selection of spirits and flavoured coffee, perfect to cap off the meal with.

Could be better

location is perfect. Parking limited. Had high hopes reading the venues own write up. The staff were very attentive, polite and smart however our Sunday lunches were tepid. They fell cold far too soon. We had to ask staff to reheat them. They did, but instead of replacing items like yorks puds that don't reheat they sent exactly - and I mean exactly with all the beef fat and gristle I had edged to one side - back to the table. We were however impressed that chef came out to enquire if all was corrected. Didn't have the heart to tell him.

Excellent experience

First time visit to this pub. Had the Sunday roast which was excellent and was cooked to perfection. Prices were a little more than I would normally pay for a Sunday dinner (typically £18 to £19) but was well worth the extra. Staff were friendly and the service was excellent. Will definately be going back.
